LONDON (Reuters) - England’s Chief Medical officer Chris Whitty said on Tuesday he expects significant levels of the coronavirus to be circulating through until next year, warning the battle with the virus will be a long haul.

“I would be surprised and delighted if we weren’t in this current situation, through the winter, and into next spring... I expect there to be significant amount of coronavirus circulating at least into that time,” he said.
